Euro Truck Simulator 2 update 1.4.8

We have done a lot of work on ironing out the last remaining issues in the 1.4.x line update, and finally today it looks like we have a very solid build:

This patch is really what 1.4.1 was supposed to be. We tested 1.4.1 extensively, or so we thought, but it really took the eyes of thousands of player to help us discover several remaining hidden bugs, through using various combinations of hardware, drivers and mods installed. We are also finally pushing the button for Steam players to have access to this new version of the game straight away, rather than depending on beta branches.

The principle of involving the fan base in the testing proved promising. We got many more wishlist items than actual bug reports, but that's to be expected. We will definitely approach the community with a plea for help again in the future.

The list of features requested by players that we have accumulated over the years is very long, and we are perhaps taking things from it and turning them into reality way slower than many of you would like, but we are doing our best, and we'll get better over time. SCS is moving into a new superb office in a matter of weeks, with 3-times the floorspace we have currently. The support from our fans (and paying customers!) is what makes us dare grow the team and speed up development of our future as well us current still evolving projects. Thank you!

Last but not least, if you were sitting on the fence waiting to get ETS2 on the cheap somewhere, today may be your last chance for quite a while on Steam - Euro Truck Simulator 2 is featured in a Daily Deal event, only a few more hours left. In particular, this opportunity is very relevant to all the people complaining about disappearing trailers/jobs - playing a legal copy of the game does make a difference!
